Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Sights and Sounds of Campers

You can tell we’ve been short on entertainment since arriving at our current campground in Pine Mountain. This weekend kicks off many spring breaks for area schools so the campground is filling up…..well should we just say they have several campers. Filling up would be a stretch. Anyway, it is always fun to watch folks come in. And it is always nice to hear sounds of fun and enjoyment being had by families. I especially love to watch the children. Perhaps that comes from teaching for 35 years. I love to watch them play and pretend and know that for at least a little while, they are not sitting in front of their TV or playing video games. They are outside riding bikes, running, throwing balls….well, just playing in the fresh air and sunshine. Oh yes, by the way, we have some of that this weekend also. It is about 74 degrees and the sun is shining. Could winter have taken the hint and left?? I can only say I hope so.

We got up this morning to be greeted by sunshine. We put out our awning and chairs and have made plans to just sit and watch some of the working world enjoy their time off. I remember so well how important time off was and it is fun to see folks just soak it up.

Of course, with the influx of weekend campers comes a little entertainment. When I first watched the movie RV, I along with most others, laughed till my sides hurt because many of the things that happened COULD be true. For example, the installing of the sewer hose by someone that doesn’t really have a good grasp with the concept of gravity.
Yes, liquid probably doesn’t flow uphill. Taking two grown men and a roll of duct tape to attach a sewer hose connector, was a sight. Oh well, we all had to learn somehow didn’t we.

So our plans today include sitting out under the awning and grilling some chicken. Maybe a long walk to enjoy this beautiful day, watching a gorgeous sunset and just relaxing in this wonderful lifestyle. We are so blessed.
